Please see the upcoming Professional Development Institutes being offered this summer for K-12 STEM teachers through QUEST 2023. Teachers will receive an honorarium ($150) and 30 professional development hours upon the completion of a QUEST unit.
QUEST is designed to enhance teachers' knowledge of science and mathematics aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in Science and Math. Each session is co-taught by Princeton University researchers, content experts, and lead teachers. QUEST builds on teachers' knowledge of science and math content along with practices through experiments, field experiences, data analysis, and discourse. These learning experiences aim to increase teachers’ enthusiasm, knowledge, and confidence in teaching science and math.
This summer the QUEST Institutes for STEM teachers include:
July 17-21: Phenomenal Fusion: Energy and Climate Justice (grades 6-12)
July 23-28: In our Backyards: Human Impacts on Pollinator and Plant Populations in Local Environments (grades 3-12)
July 24-28: Buried Secrets: The Geological Significance, Formation and History of Iron Ore Deposits in the NJ Highlands (grades 3-12)
August 14-18: Climate Change: Exploring Solutions to a Complex Problem (grades 5-12)
